I don't like it at all, it says nothing about FASHION! It's boring = US Harper's Bazaar is pure ****! Their covers are soooooo not glamorous/high fashion/eyes' catching. This does nothing in terms of poses/clothing/coverlines or colors.

the cover is too crowded with the texts and also the layout is really horrible, the editorial shots are just ok for me

Madonna has never looked good on US Bazaar, this is her 5th or 6th one.

I'm so happy to see Andrea on the cover but maybe it's something about the lighting or the airbrushing, but her features seem a little off - her facial contours are barely there. I don't like the tagline either 'Madonna and her new movie star.' it seems a little patronising. Apart from that...it's ok, it's pretty.

I prefer the second cover! Madonna in that fedora is gorgeous!

Wow...they're down to doing 10 issues a year. Sad. Last year was 11 issues and this year 10.

The subscriber's cover is so much better! Love the ed too, Madonna looks amazing.

She has that star quality that can't be denied...stating the obvious...and here she looks more like Marlene Dietrich than ever.

The worst thing is - this issue has to kick around the newsstand for the next two months, so it can't talk about Christmas too much, or else the cover and content will be outdated by 25 December, but that's failing to make the most of the biggest commercial event in the calendar.

What's the alternative? To sell the idea of 2012? At the moment, the average person can't see past Christmas, they don't care about what's happening with spring fashion, they simply want to buy gifts and wear warm clothes.

The thing about the French Vogue Dec-Jan issue, having a guest editor gives the content a whole different focus, over and above the festive period, so the issue can still seem fairly relevant for some time.

But that's not the case with US Bazaar. Combining an issue during the summer months, perhaps you could say that not much happens before August, so it's no real loss. But to do so at this time of year, it seems like shooting yourself in the foot - in order to avoid having to produce a January issue, you miss the opportunity to make the most of a December one.

I really really like this cover. In comparison to other magazines it's not impressive, but Harper's Bazaar US has literally become so laughably consistent in their same horrible newsstand covers that I am nothing less than thrilled to see something a bit different here. Somehow even the text on the newsstand cover is so much less annoying than it normally is! It blends in better.

I haven't purchased an issue of this magazine in almost two years, but I will purchase this based almost solely on the fact that the cover is a little different.
